New recommendations for sunblock labeling

Updated: Saturday, May 25, 2013 |
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The FDA hopes new labels on sunscreen will make it easier for you to choose the best products.

The new label requirements do away with words like sunblock, waterproof, and sweatproof.

Products will only get the 'Water Resistant' label if they pass testing.

The same goes for 'broad spectrum,' which means the sunscreen protects against both UV-A and UV-B rays.

Under the new rules, a product with an SPF below 15 has a warning saying it only helps prevent sunburn, and does not protect against skin cancer or skin aging.

Dermatologists also recommend putting on sunscreen 15 minutes before going out.
